Continuing Legal Education (Hong Kong): Risk Management Education

by on June 7, 2010

The Hong Kong Academy of Law offers a number of classes and seminars which confer CPD points for attorneys practicing in Hong Kong.  One of the more interesting upcoming offerings is entitled “Management of Technology and Cyber Risk in the Modern Law Firm”.  From the HKAL website:

“Computers and other forms of information technology (IT) have the potential to transform the efficiency, profitability and working practices of the modern law firm. However, this involvement with and reliance upon technology has simultaneously exposed lawyers to a range of new risks and threats, both internally and in their dealings with clients and third-parties, whose potential to cause disruption could outweigh the benefits brought by IT.

The elective will help delegates:

  • Recognise the extent of the technology-related risks facing a modern law firm
  • Identify a number of issues relating to: internal threats to security, external threats to security and threats arising out of normal client/lawyer communications
  • Translate the implications of such risks into appropriate action for their own practice.

The course is highly participatory in approach, mixing lectures with case studies and practical exercises to explore risk management in an interactive manner that will resonate with day-to-day practice.”
